I am very familiar with astrology but this the first time I became aware of Angel Astrology better known as angelogy. Doreen Virtue has teamed up and co-authored with astrologist and Angel Therapist Yasmin Boland to combine both astrology and angelogy. I found this book very easy to understand, very informative and the illustrations are beautiful.
When reading about the archangels that are associated with us and our natal birth signs validated many experiences that I have had in the past. Each astrological sign has a guardian archangel to help us along the path of life. My guardian is Sandalphon, who is often called the “Angel of Music.” In fact, Archangel Sandalphon often delivers messages through songs heard in the mind or on the radio. He’s around at those times when you hear just the song you need to. I have had personal experiences in the past while visiting Sedona where music has mysteriously began to play on my iPod when it had been tucked away in my pocket and turned off. Here is one example of the songs that began to play while I was sitting in a quiet state on the top of a very beautiful mountain and vortex.
The presumed Father of Astrology was a man named Hermes Trismegistus, whom Doreen wrote about in her book Angel Medicine. Doreen’s research showed that Hermes was a great teacher and leader in Atlantis, and then in Egypt, following the great Flood. He is said to be the grandson of the first man, Adam, and is also credited with the expression “As above, so below,” which he inscribed on the famous Emerald Tablet as part of his Hermetic teachings. The phrase means: What happens up in the Heavens is reflected down here on Earth. If you bear in mind Trismegistus’s assertion that “we are all connected to all life everywhere,” it’s not such a big leap to think that we’re also connected to the planets. * Ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Arabians, and Greeks, as well as Kabbalists in the Judaic tradition, all had input into the development of astrology as we know it now. Along the way, our ancestors noticed patterns among the dispositions of people according to their time, date, and place of birth. These observations also became the basis for modern natal astrology.
Just as everyone has an astrological birth chart, so do we all have assigned guardian angels. These are personal angels who are with you prior to birth, all throughout your life, and in Heaven after your physical passing. Guardian angels aren’t departed relatives; they are egoless celestial beings who are enacting God’s will of peace through everyone. Your guardian angels provide you with continuous love, support, and guidance. They also do their best to protect you, provided that you notice and follow their guidance in the form of warning thoughts, gut feelings, and signs. In addition to personal guardian angels, the archangels also provide guidance and protection. Archangels are large, powerful angels who oversee guardian angels. Each archangel has a specialty. For example, Archangel Michael offers protection and courage, Raphael administers healing, Gabriel provides nurturing and messages, Uriel shines light, and so forth. All of Heaven respects the free will of humans, so angels and archangels will never push their guidance upon you. Rather, they will wait until you pray to God for help, or ask for assistance. Only then are angels and archangels allowed to intervene. Fortunately, it doesn’t matter how you ask for Heavenly help—whether through formal prayer, affirmations, a fervent plea, a letter, or visualization.
All of the astrological signs have issues to deal with. We incarnate as a particular sign so we can face them. Here is a quick overview (you will have to purchase the book to get the full details!)of the Archangels associated with the astrological signs.
ARIES AND ARCHANGEL ARIEL
Archangel Ariel is also known as the “Angelic Ambassador of Divine Magic and Miraculous Manifestation.” She reminds you that anything is possible if you approach life with the innocence of a child.
TAURUS AND ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL
Archangel Chamuel reminds us that everything we seek is already inside us. No matter what your sign, if you’re having trouble in a relationship or a friendship, Chamuel is a great archangel to turn to for help.
GEMINI AND ARCHANGEL ZADKIEL
Zadkiel is about forgiveness that comes from the heart; while Gemini is associated with the intellect, the mind, and a talkative conversation style. Archangel Zadkiel can help you shift your focus from the negative to the positive.
CANCER AND ARCHANGEL GABRIEL
The Archangel Gabriel/Cancer pairing is a very warm and comforting combination. If you have any Cancerian friends, you’ll recognize how nurturing they are. Archangel Gabriel will help you find the answers to all your questions about how to best look out for others.
LEO AND ARCHANGEL RAZIEL
Archangel Raziel has a rainbow-colored aura that beautifully complements the sign of Leo, guided by the Sun. As the wizard and metaphysician of the archangels, Raziel has the power to heal.
VIRGO AND ARCHANGEL METATRON
Archangel Metatron uses an energy tool that is shaped from all the Platonic solids, called a Merkabah (or “Metatron’s Cube”), for healing and clearing away lower energies. For this reason, he works perfectly in tandem with Virgo—the sign associated so strongly with healing (conventional or alternative) and service to others.
LIBRA AND ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL
Archangel Jophiel is the “Angel of Beauty,” so she’s the perfect match for Libra—the sign guided by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Wherever you have Libra in your chart is where you can appreciate beauty, where you can hold beautiful thoughts, and where you can beautify your life. Jophiel helps us restore balance in our thoughts and in our living and working environments.
SCORPIO AND ARCHANGEL JEREMIEL
Archangel Jeremiel, whose specialties complement those on the Scorpio path. Jeremiel is one of the seven core archangels. His main role is to help newly crossed-over souls review their lives. Scorpios and Jeremiel plunge fearlessly into areas that the average person doesn’t want to acknowledge. They are truly fearless!
SAGITTARIUS AND ARCHANGEL RAGUEL
For Sagittarius, life is a game. And for Archangel Raguel, life is a party, because he’s the most sociable of all the archangels. His name means “Friend of God,” and his focus is on peace and harmony with everyone in the world.
CAPRICORN AND ARCHANGEL AZRAEL
Archangel Azrael gently heals grief-stricken hearts. Capricorns tend to have lives where a lot of karma is being balanced. So they may find interactions with others tough because they’re dealing with people who hurt them or whom they hurt in previous lives. The karmic test is whether Capricorns can forgive and release old pain and anguish. Archangel Azrael is very adept at healing the heart in those who have lost someone or something.
AQUARIUS AND ARCHANGEL URIEL
Aquarians are famous for being brilliant thinkers and the inventors of astrology. All that time they spend in their heads often leads to inspired ideas and inventions. That’s why the two energies of Uriel and Aquarius go so well together.
PISCES AND ARCHANGEL SANDALPHON
Pisces is the sign of the spiritual seeker, and Sandalphon is a master at helping people find inner peace. The two go hand in hand.
